A group of North Wales Scouts are looking for a place to pitch their tents in preparation for the next World Scout Jamboree which takes place in Japan in 2015.

Picture of tents has nothing to do with the scouts, but it looks quite nice.

Before the 36 teenagers and their 4 leaders leave for the Jamboree they need to hold six training camps, and as the experience is already costing them £3,000 a head they want to keep costs down.

The camps are a vital part of the preparations as the Scouts will be from across Wales and it’s important they get to know each other before they leave for Japan.

Unit Leader David Morris said,

‘We hope the community can help us out here. All we need is a place to pitch 20 small tents, access to toilets and water, and an inside room with tables & chairs for training sessions.

‘The ideal place would be maybe a sports club with a spare bit of pitch, a village hall or school with land nearby, or company offices if there’s room for tents in their grounds.

‘We’d also be grateful if any shops could donate any food that is going out of date which we could feed 40 hungry Scouts with!’

The Scouts have already planned the dates for their camps.

They are 30th November-1st December 2013, 29th-30th March 2014, 12th-13th July 2014, 1st-2nd November 2014, 21st-22nd February 2015 and the 4th-5th July 2015.

If anyone in North or Mid Wales can accommodate the Scouts on any of these dates they can contact David Morris on 07779 272340 or email [email protected]
